Description
Clarkson Book Support System - Medium 500mm x 348mm. Book Support System designed by Christopher Clarkson to cater for books with a wide variety of structural variations. The system is used in institutions throughout the world. The book support is built up from lightweight units of synthetic foam. Synthetic foam allows a book’s uneven board surfaces even with bosses and side pins to be equally supported over their entire exterior surface. The particular density of foam was chosen for the important non-slip characteristic required and the grey colour was found preferable for a library environment. The concept of related units has dictated the use of generalised angles and dimensions in the design. Simplicity and ease of storage (impossible to achieve with combined tilt-and-wedge designs) are special features of the style. The units consist of three basic shapes in various format sizes: - Blunt Wedge A pair of wedges plus one of the next larger format size for each regular ‘place-setting’ - Spine Support-Strip Used when ‘tight-back’ (flexible) bindings are read - Rectangular Pad 25mm (1”) thick. - Two pads would be the normal requirement for each ‘place-setting’ three may be needed for a very thick book Six units are required for each placement set. Besides the synthetic foam units one other piece of equipment is needed; a ‘snake’ a strap of weighted fabric which is used to hold the book open two being required for each ‘place setting’. The book supports are available as 6 piece sets for each of the three sizes: Large, Medium and Small. The larger wedges can also be used by themselves to display single sheet items at a reasonable reading angle.
